It was in the year 2000….
Big and tall trees could be seen along the swamp while the rays of the sun break through the leaves. The place was so peaceful and quiet except for the sound of the wild birds. They were music to the ear! Air was so fresh! The deep forest was almost like a Paradise!
The speedboat which carried us from the Port Harcourt Base was zigzagging along the river. The trips were usually enjoyable and interesting. Life indeed had so much to offer! Our destination was to the Houseboats stationed along the swamp nearby the oil pipeline project in Nembe.
One evening we were unexpectedly visited by some rebels. Armed with long bladed weapons and guns they had demanded for some things they badly needed. It was a frightening “face-to-face” with them .What a life changing moment! There was nothing left to do but pray, deeply, and hoping to reach the Heavens instantly!
And God listened! The fear was soon gone. Lessons were learned. Life depended on its Maker!
Pray! Talk with Him heart-to-heart!
He has been waiting for you.
He will always do.
We all are His children. Trust and strive to be happy!
“It is I who made the earth and created mankind upon it. My own hands stretched out the heavens; I marshaled their starry hosts.”
